The seminar consists of two parts:

25th and 26th September: Invited lectures and presentations from participants at H.H. Koch, building 110, Risø. Prof. Frank Vanhaecke (Ghent University, Belgium) will give the opening lecture and several highly reputed experts will give invited talks.

27th September: Lab practice in room S15-17, building 204, Risø.


Seminar Objectives:

The seminar aims to strengthen the education of MSc/PhD students and young scientists and to increase competence of staff involved to explore the application of ICP techniques for different purposes in nuclear and radiochemistry fields.

1) To provide the participants with an overview of state-of-the-art fundamental aspects and instrumental developments of ICP techniques, and the applications of these techniques in interdisciplinary contexts.

2) To provide an opportunity to the participants getting hands-on experience of ICP instrument operation, maintenance, data acquisition and software instruction by participating in practical training in the laboratory.

3) To provide a forum for knowledge and experience exchange in various aspects related to ICP techniques and stimulate international collaborations.


Seminar Scope 

Fundamental aspects and instrumental developments:

  • ICP fundamentals and mechanisms
  • sample preparation and matrix effect
  • sample introduction and transport phenomena
  • removal of interferences
  • software and data analysis 

Applications of ICP techniques in the analysis of:

  • natural and anthropogenic radionuclides
  • isotopic ratio of radioactive and stable elements
  • environmental studies
  • forensic analysis
  • geological dating
  • biological / clinical / pharmaceutical materials
